found this 1987 Bridgestone Mile 112 road bike at the Golden West
College swap meet where I probably paid too much as I later found
out the rear rim was not repairable. Anyway, I got a good price
on a pair of unclaimed Mavik rims already set up for a single speed
at our LBS in Long Beach. We swapped the Biopace chainring for a
39x16 freewheel combination that is working great for my son Peter
at hilly UC San Diego, bartered for a used Bianchi saddle/SR seat
post, chopped and flipped the handlebars, Forte campus pedals, new
brake handles/cables and decided to keep the original paint for
now. It's a speedy lightweight ride that is getting a workout around
site has proved highly informative and inspired my new hobby: bike
repair. Love looking at the all the vintage bikes that have been
restored to good use.
